Grant Program for Natural Gas Vehicles Now Open


Starting today, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is accepting applications for its Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) program, which Gov. Tom Corbett touted earlier this month.

The AFIG initiative has received a fresh injection of $10 million in funding, all of which will be steered toward providing incentives for the purchase or conversion of light- and medium-duty natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and other alt-fuel vehicles.

The DEP will accept applications for NGVs under 14,000 lbs. GVW, and for propane autogas, electric and other alt-fuel vehicles in any weight class. A wide range of fleets are eligible for the grants, from local transportation entities and municipalities to corporate and nonprofit fleets.

Applicants interested in purchasing or converting only one or two alt-fuel vehicles are encouraged to partner with other eligible applicants to aggregate vehicles into a single application, which will satisfy the grant's five-vehicle minimum, the DEP notes.

Applications are due July 26, 2013, by 4:00 p.m Eastern. Grants will be awarded this fall.
